Y'all are talking like it's going to take thousands of dollars out of your pockets. For the average home owner, it will come out to around $20 or $30 a year. OMG, a whopping $30!!! Those against the Stadium tax are spending more than that on signs & billboards.
The truth is that no other team has ever made an offer like this to Wilmington. No other minor league team has lasted more than 2-years here, primarily because of having to play at UNCW. The Braves are guaranteeing 20-years minimum of professional baseball here in the Port City. The $500,000 a year that they will be paying the city is a better deal than other cities get. We can use this stadium for so many other things. This team could bring togetherness & a sense of pride to the city. Perhaps, the CAA Baseball Tourney could move here? concerts? There will be a lot more people coming to town to spend money as a result of this stadium. If the city & people of Wilmington let this slip through their fingers, then it will truly be a trajedy.
